Albatros Motorcycles

A Brief History of the Marque

Manufacturer: Henri Billouin, from 1904

104 avenue de Villiers Paris

Records of this firm are sparse. In 1907 their catalogue listed L'Albatros motocyclettes and a tri-car front end for adapting to other motorcycles; they supplied 203cc engines to A.Z.

In 1912 the company built motorcycles typical of the period powered by Givaudan engines, and also produced bicycles and a light car. These were exported to Russia shortly before the revolution.

In the same year production ceased, and in 1925 Billouin sold the company to Peugeot.
